About Bivik Shah:

Dr. Bivik Shah started the Columbus Institute of Plastic Surgery, serving Columbus and Dayton, Ohio, because he wanted to create an environment in a private practice setting that left every patient satisfied and comfortable. He strives to make his patients feel cared for and important as they attempt to meet each and every medical and personal need. 

Dr. Shah grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio. He earned an electrical engineering degree from the University of Michigan before returning to Ohio to attend medical school at Ohio State University. Dr. Shah later joined the faculty of Ohio State University, where he was responsible for performing surgery on some of the city's most complicated burn and reconstruction cases.

Dr. Shah is actively involved in Operation Smile, which provides voluntary care to children around the world and in the United States who are born with facial deformities. Dr. Shah has been on four separate Operation Smile missions, visiting Thailand, India, Honduras, and Bolivia to provide care to children born with cleft lip and cleft palate deformities. During the Operation Smile missions, which last for one or two weeks, Dr. Shah, and fellow volunteers operate for charity on about 100-150 children, providing them with new smiles and a renewed hope for the future.

Dr. Shah is a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the American Burn Association, the Ohio State Medical Association, and the Columbus Medical Association.

Tummy Tuck

Love Dr. Shah very professional and friendly. His staff were so welcoming.

Arm Lift

Dr. Shah listened attentively and patiently. He answered all my questions and addressed all my concerns, at EVERY step along the way: pre-surgery, surgery day, and post-surgery visits. And the results of his expert surgery were SPECTACULAR!


Love Dr. Shah! And his girls are awesome! Great experience! Super flat tummy.

Tummy Tuck

Staff is very friendly and welcoming. I felt very cared for and comfortable. All of my questions and concerns were addressed and the actual procedure day felt very pampering; completely different than a hospital surgery. Staff were as excited as I was for my procedure. I love how they made me comfortable in the surgery suite.

Face Lift

I still have 2 areas of concern. I fully intend to return to the office and address same. I am sure that my issues will be satisfactorily resolved.

Neck Lift

All questions answered

Breast Augmentation

Knowledgeable and kind

Male Breast Reduction

All steps in the process were designed with me (the patient) in mind. Everyone was kind and never hesitated to take the time to answer my questions. (which were plenty)

Breast Augmentation

My boobs look amazing, Dr. Shah talked me through everything and helped me decide what size would work best for me.

Breast Augmentation

I was comfortable during an uncomfortable situation. Staff was pleasant and informative. Outstanding recovery and results


The front office staff and O.R. staff were all very helpful throughout my whole surgery! From my first consult, to my surgery day, to the weeks following my surgery. They were all genuinely happy to help me with anything I needed or any questions I had, which was great, because I had a lot! But no matter how many questions I had or how many times I asked the same question(s) they were super nice and happy to help! They really make you feel as if you're apart of their family! I couldn't have asked for a better experience! [Single best thing is...] The helpfulness of the staff and MY RESULTS!!!!

Breast Implant Revision

Everyone is fast, friendly and informative in the office. No questions get unanswered! I would advise anyone to go to this office!

Chemical Peel

My esthetician, Cathy Shuttleworth, went above and beyond for me- seeing her was the highlight of my visit. She is so knowledgeable and talented at what she does. My skin looked great after the treatment!

Breast Reduction

I was very happy with my consultation for my procedure. The surgeon took time and answered all my questions and made me feel very comfortable. Everyone I met with in the office was very nice and professional.

Breast Augmentation

Everyone was very friendly and helpful. I felt at ease and all of the information was explained to me in a way that was easy to understand. The staff was very helpful with rescheduling my surgery more than once due to other things that were going on in my life at the time. [Single best thing is...] How the staff made me feel comfortable

Male Breast Reduction

I am still waiting for my body to heal so I can see how my chest will transform. It has only been 10 weeks now and it takes more time to see the results. I am now waiting to see how it will heal properly and how my chest looks like. Until now I am satisfied.

Tummy Tuck

Having a tummy tuck was the final step of my weight loss journey. Dr. Shah and his staff listened with great care, provided a professional; yet caring response to all of my questions. The outcome of my procedure was exactly what I expected. My tummy tuck decision was a result of 25+ years of hard work. Dr. Shah’s experience and recommendations helped me achieve the best result, for that I am forever grateful!

Neck Lift

My face looks great so far. Dr. Shah is very nice, professional, and patient with all my questions. The doctor who called me when I had a concern about possible infection was also nice and sounded sincerely concerned. Even with all the swelling my chin/neck/face looked good almost immediately. I'm still swollen, but can tell the surgery was a success. I can't wait for the healing to be complete.

Tummy Tuck

The ease of the staff and the cleaness of the office.

Mommy Makeover

Everything was amazing. Very happy. I can wear shirts and pants and not feel like I’m always trying to hide my stomach.
